Bacteria thrive in the dark, damp places inside sweaty shoes and they feast on your feet – eating dead skin cells and oils from your skin. And they get rid of waste in the form of organic acids. It’s those organic acids that smell bad. Gran’s Remedy is a proven way of stopping bacteria buildup. It leaves both your shoes and feet smelling fresh.
Smelly feet are the butt of many jokes. But having smelly feet and footwear is no laughing matter & it's a highly embarrassing condition that can cause the sufferer to feel self-conscious and stressed.
Foot odour control
The main thing that feeds foot odour is sweat. With more than 250,000 sweat glands each, your feet are one of the parts of the body that perspire most. In one day, each foot can produce more than a pint of sweat! Sweat is basically just salt and water, so it doesn't have a distinctive smell. The smell is actually caused by bacteria on our skin that feed on the sweat, and excrete waste, which has a strong odour.
Sweat, bacteria growth & a bad smell
Wearing the same pair of shoes every day means that sweat builds up inside the shoes. This keeps the shoes moist, contributing to the production of excessive perspiration, bacterial growth and often, an unpleasant smell. If your footwear is left to dry for a few days, the smell usually fades away. But once you put the footwear on again, the warmth returns and so does the bad smell.
